  • Unique Design = Better Performance from Your Dog

    All training dummies are not created equal. The basic dummy design has barely changed since they were first introduced -- a straight plastic or canvas cylinder with or without bumps for grip. AirFlow Bumpers are better for your dog's athletic performance, better for proper retrieval training, and better for overall health. AirFlow Bumpers are engineered to improve oxygen intake and carrying position, all while encouraging a softer grip. Both hunters and trainers alike will appreciate how this unique AirFlow Bumpers design helps develop a superior dog.

    Researchers at the Canine Performance Sciences Center in the School of Veterinary Medicine at Auburn University found that traditional training bumpers restrict 93% of the airflow through dogs' mouths, almost completely blocking the air. To address this problem, they developed a completely new design -- the AirFlow Bumper.

    AirFlow Bumper vs. Standard Bumper -- this MRI shows a 350% increase in breathing space.



    American Manufacturing and Quality

    AirFlow Bumpers are made in the U.S. and are subject to U.S. health and safety regulations. Recent news reports have shown pet products coming from China vary greatly in quality and safety. Most standard plastic bumpers are made in China of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), which contains 36% to 72% phthalates -- harmful chemicals that can leach out. PVC has been banned from children's toys since 2008. AirFlow Bumpers are made from an FDA and EU-approved nontoxic food-grade plastic. This plastic is flexible, tasteless, and extremely durable, while still maintaining the proper feel and bounce.

    "From breathing to durability to holding to overall design, there's nothing but positive reasons to recommend these bumpers."

    --Andy Attar, Leading Field-Trial Trainer: 5 National Field-Trial Champions, 2 National Amateur Field-Trial Champions

    "My young dogs find it natural to carry it properly. AirFlow Bumpers really help the training flow. This has been a great product to work with."

    --Greg Oyer, Leading Young Dog Trainer

    "We designed the AirFlow Bumper beginning with the anatomy of a dog's mouth. With this design, we're able to deliver an over 350% improvement in breathable space, more comfort for the dog and an overall significantly improved experience for these dogs."

    --Craig Angle, Ph.D., ME.d, Canine Performance Sciences, Auburn University

    Great for young dogs learning to hold bumper in center.
    August 15, 2020
    Great Bumper! My dog grabs these bumpers in the middle more than reg bumpers. She likes retrieving them in the water better. I do think the grooves help.

    Merchant Response:Thanks, Ben! Glad your dog loves these. The smart guys at Auburn who invented these knew what they were doing! THANKS FOR THE PHOTOS! Agree on the price. We're working on it. Manufacturing in the USA with medical grade materials is pretty expensive, but for us it beats not knowing who made this and out of what material. -- ROB SNELL
    ProsShape of the bumper are awesome. They whistle when you chunk them. Its a cool sound. Quality. My dog holds them better than traditional bumpers.

    The dogs don't seem to take on as much water when swimming with these style bumpers.
